    Shrink wrap for grips

    G, day gents,
    just after some info about closing off the ends when attaching shrink grip to the eva grips, I have never used this stuff on rods before.
    Is it put on after the grips are in place or do you shrink it on then ream out the grip.

    I heat the end so that it curves around the end of the fore grip. I then find a winding check that will cover the exposed end

    G,day Jack,
    The shrink wrap has a criss cross pattern in it,
    looks pretty good, also its what the client wants.

    Cheers
